Alejandro Castro
Resident:Caracas Venezuela
Photographer:Stephanie Rojas
Alejandro was born in San Francisco, California in 1998.
Son of a italian/venezuelan mother and a venezuelan father.
Both immigrated to the US about 35 years ago and
jumped from city to city until they decided San Francisco
was the best place to settle in. About two years ago
his family had to move back to Caracas Venezuela,
which was a strong impact in Alejandro’s life since Caracas is not anything
like San Francisco. Alejandro doesn’t love Caracas, since according to
him and to the majority of the country, Venezuela has its ups and down,
he wants freedom and have the chance to live without being afraid of going
out of his house.
